Year 2020

Covid 19 Since June 2, 2020, the Glorious Croce site has been open at the usual times, but with restrictions linked to the respect of governmental sanitary rules(respect of distances, wearing of masks advised in groups...).

The Pilgrimage of the 28th and the 29th of March 2020, did not take place, but over a hundred known people from across the country were able to pray at 3pm in association with M.H., who represented us at the Butte. The site was closed during the spring lockdown and reopened in May 2020, so the pilgrimage on the 28th of March could not take place. The pilgrimage on the 14th of September, Feast of the Glorious Cross, took place and the one on the 22th of November, Feast of Christ the King, did not take place due to the confinement.
